Hi all. I'm looking to purchase a used gl1800. Having never owned one before, I am not aware of things to look for when buying a used one. Even if you haven't had any troubles with yours, your experiences could help a lot. Thanks.
Welcome Craig.The first thing you need to do is get the VIN number from any you are serious about,call a dealer and have them run the number to see if the frame recall has been done.Do the owners have good maint. records? If so,that's a big plus. I own a 1500.Plenty of 1800 owners on here will post more of what you need to look for.
Heh, welcome to the site. I cheated and bought my 1800 new. But, I do know 06 and up don't have the frame weld problem. They also have larger radiators to overcome low speed overheating issues on the first years. Basically after that, it becomes an issue of what model level within that year. The up-side to used is someone most likely has already sprung for aftermarket goodies like SAFETY CHROME.
